All the various corps in Shropshire appear to have worn scarlet coats or jackets with black facings except for the Oswestry Rangers who had green facings. Some of the earlier raised corps wore the black round hat with bearskin crest, but by 1814 all were wearing the Tarleton helmet. In the early 1820s the north and south Shropshire were dressed as dragoons and it is presumed that the Shrewsbury corps were similar. The North Shropshire Yeomanry wore scarlet dragoon pattern coats with black velvet facings and in 1825 the steel Romanesque helmet with black crest. The lace was gold. Both North and South regiments seem to have followed the same pattern of copying the regulation Dragoon uniform until the Crimean War. After that conflict, while the South Salopian Yeomanry continued to dress as dragoons wearing the current Albert helmet with black plume, the Northern unit headed in a different direction. In 1857 it adopted a black japanned Albert helmet with a red and white plume and white metal fittings. It took a Lancer style tunic into wear in 1859 which was blue with red facings and silver lace. Overalls were blue with a red stripe. Amalgamation finally took place in 1872 and the result was the Northern uniform with the regular dragoon pattern helmet of the southern. Now known as the Shropshire Yeomanry Cavalry this uniform was worn, with a lancer girdle until 1882 when the tunic became single breasted and the girdle was replaced with a white waist belt with, instead of the snake clasp, a plate with a leopard’s head (Loggerhead) on the face. The tunic retained its lancer pattern flaps on the rear of the skirt but otherwise it was plain. Apart from rank chevrons which were worn on a red backing, corporals had a .125” gold edging to the cuffs, Sergeants had a 0.5” edging and Senior NCOs had an additional collar edging as well. The 1847 Albert pattern helmet remained the same for all ranks until it was meant to be replaced in 1898, however few of these 1872 patterns were apparently delivered before the Boer War. At least one bandsman is shown wearing one in a late 19th century photo. It has a red plume.
Stable jackets followed the normal pattern and were abolished in 1898. The five button frock was worn by all ranks thereafter it had plain collar and cuffs and shoulder chains. Pillbox caps were blue with red bands, piping and buttons, NCOs with gold lace and a scarlet Torin cap with red body and blue flaps was worn by SNCOs with the loggerhead badge.
The Shropshire Yeomanry did not wear khaki after the Boer War, but retained the frock, this time without shoulder chains with blue puttees. Blue staff pattern caps with scarlet band and piping were issued in 1904 and in 1911 the blue service dress with scarlet collar and cuffs was worn with the helmet for the 1911 coronation.
